and up' worried a foreign policy cliff and not merely the little fiscal cliff we have to deal with january 1. >> chris: panel, we have to take a break here. we we come back, our panel dusts off the crystal ball and gives us their predictions for 2013. share everything. share brotherly love. share one up's. mom ? mom ? the share everything plan. lets your family share a pool of data across 10 devices with unlimited talk and text. get a sptrum 2 by lg for $49.99 for their annual football trip. that's double miles you can actually use. tragically, their ddy got sacked by blackouts. but it's our tradition! that's roughing the card holder. but with the capital one venture card you get double miles you can actually use. [ cheering ] any flight, anytime. the scoreboard doesn't lie. what's in your wallet? hut! i have me on my fantasy team. >> chris: we a year end tradition around here to have the panel make some predictions for the new year on a range of topics but given our track records in the area i would not rush to las vegas to place any bets, folks. start with something we are s
these jobs, foreign policy is my passion, and yet actually i'm also a mother and i want to be at home for the last five years that my children are at home and it was hard for me to admit that to myself. but in the end i had to recognize both as a matter of need and want that my life was going to go in a different direction than i had always expected it would, and i had to listen to that and i had to in the end kind of say, wow, maybe i'm not quite the same person i thought i was, but i know this is the right thing for me to do. >> what was the most difficult part of your job in relation to balancing it with your role as a mother? >> it was just that sense so often where, you know, particularly my oldest son really needed me home, needed us both there, and i was in another place. and i could not do anything about that. you know, i think that is true for millions of parents and certainly millions of women, and i realized the stress was just overwhelming of knowing that i had a child who really did need me and i couldn't respond. i couldn't live up to that responsibility. >> after you ca
of the 20th-century would bring as a major financial crisis and gulf was a foreign policy that would overextend us and undermine our national security. the government would have had to change in monetary system, shrink in size and scope, and reduce the unsustainable cost of policing the world. the problems seem to be overwhelming and impossible to solve, yet from my viewpoint, just following the constraints placed on the federal government by the constitution would have been a good place to start. just how much did i accomplished? in many ways, according to conventional wisdom, but often on a career in congress from 1976 to 2012 accomplished very little. no name legislation, no name federal buildings or highways. the government has grown exponentially. taxes remain excessive. a prolific increase of incomprehensible regulations continues. wars are constant, and pursued without congressional declaration. deficits rise to this guy. poverty is rampant. dependency on the federal government is now worse than any time in our history. all of this with minimal concerns the deficit and unfunde
to get into foreign policy. one of the first things he does is he reaches out to one of the senator fulbrights. he gets a call from senator byrd's office. they ask him to come in interview. he is stunned. he does not think senator byrd cares about foreign policy. senator byrd convinces him he wants to be involved in foreign policy. as the book unfolds and as i learned about it, it is amazing to see how strong he is on foreign policy almost from the beginning. he plays this phenomenally important role. in the panama canal treaties. it is not just who has the votes, but he understands the substance better than anyone else. they all went down to panama, but he leads one of the first trips. he goes down there and he learns the panama issues. he brought the same dedication to every issue. one thing i say in the book is he knew that just being leader did not make you a great senator automatically. whoever heard of scott lucas and william nolan, senate majority leaders before lyndon johnson. you never heard of them because they did not do anything. robert byrd brought that extra dimension
is that look i served in the congress. these negotiations happen on budgets, on taxes, on even foreign policy issues the last days when the presidential hopefuls he sure is really on. when the gun is pointing to the head of a lot of members of congress. bipartisan, republican and democrats. it is moving in the right direction. we have three, four days to go. i wouldn't be surprised ifing something doesn't happen until the very last day. but i think it will. i sense that. >> sean: let me governor just very gently disagree with you. i know you probably think this is maybe a good deal whatever they are talking about and they are talking. i spoke to somebody who was in the meeting today and the president is exactly where he was on day one and that is businesses, small business, over $250,000 they pay more. that would fund government for 8 and a half days. that is all that is going to be. to me when a president borrows 46 cents of every dollar and we are $16 trillion in debt tell me where we are wronging. i don't think we are dealing with the real problem. i don't think this solves anything. i thi
's not forget about the rest of the world where any number of foreign policy entanglements could overwhelm the most carefully laid plans. let's bring in dana milbank and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart also of the "washington post" to help me sort out how does a man get it done in the second term? dana, you know, they say that the second term a president really has about 18 months to get anything done and after that you're pretty much a lame duck. now, of all the things i just listed, what do you think he should and what do you think he will try to tackle first? >> well, karen, first of all, i don't think he needs to surrender to the idea that he only has that 18-month period. it's not without precedent to achieve things later in the term. so, first of all, it's not necessarily such a narrow window. the other thing is assuming we have to do something with the fiscal cliff here, but even once that's done and presume lbl awhat we're looking at now is more of a smaller short-term fix, that doesn't mean he's going to take his eye off the economy. he learned the lesson of this early in his
. >> absolutely. >> let me ask you about a couple of foreign policy notes. after the attack in benghazi, is there a need for more accountability so that this doesn't happen again, and do you know who is behind the attack at this point? >> two points. number one, i think that tom pickering and mike mullen who headed up the review board did a very thorough job in identifying what were some severe problems in diplomatic security. and they provided us with a series of recommendations, many of them were already starting to be implemented. secretary clinton has indicated that she is going to implement all of them. what my message to the state department's been very simple. and that is, we're going to solve this. we're not going to be defensive about it. we're not going to pretend that this was not a problem. this was a huge problem. and we're going to implement every single recommendation that's been put forward. some individuals have been held accountable inside of the state department. and what i've said is that we are going to fix this to make sure that this does not happen again. because
. please stay tuned. we have another leadership crisis, this one in foreign policy. the russian president and vladimir putin signed bill banning adoptions by americans starting january 1st. it's likely 46 children who were to be adopted in the u.s. will have to remain in russia. on average about 900 children get adopted each year by americans in the soviet union, excuse me, from russia and there's been no formal response from the white house on this. here is former pentagon adviser michael rubin. >> thanks for having me, michelle. >> what should the white house do in response to this? >> ultimately, what with will have to be inspected and considered is the whole nature of the reset policy. if we trace the beginnings of this crisis back it actually started with the white house reaching out to vladimir putin to russia in supporting russia's accession to the world trade organization. the amendment which had govern the a lot of u.s.-russian/soviet relations going back to the 1970s had to be replaced. it was replaced in congress by the act which set russia's worst human viets violators there s
with everything in foreign policy for the last decade, when it comes to making a deal with iran later in the year, which is a real possibility. they're going to try and block any kind of arrangement that we make in terms of a nuclear deal. >> o'donnell: speak of cabinet changees, we all know hillary clinton is moving on. we've not seen her for three weeks. has anyone heard how she's doing? and what's next for hillary clinton? dee dee? >> you get that question. ( laughter ). >> no, you know, she was very sick with the flu, fell and hilt her head, as we all know, and suffered a concussion, which was pretty serious. and had repercussions for her. she was really out of-- you know, incapacitated-- not incapacitated that's too strike word-- but she was really suffering from the effects of hitting her head so glad to see he's returning to work on monday-- i guess right after the holiday. it was too bad seeing some in the public taking shots at her. that was cheap under the circumstances. what will she do next? whatever she wants is the answer. she wants to continue work wog behalf of women and girls.

, remember, and this is one of my predictions, foreign policy could sneak up on us. whatever we think that everything is about domestic policy, it often turns out to be about foreign policy and president obama will get frustrated with congress. as a second term president he'll probably do what other second term presidents have done, focus on foreign policy. >> juliet: all right, and your final prediction has to do with neil cavuto. >> this i believe, neil cavuto will continue to lose bets to me. now, neil doesn't get up this early on sunday as you know, but i hope somebody tells him what the prediction is, it was crystal clear in the crystal ball. >> juliet: we'll get to get his reaction. >> dave: i'll tell him right now and try to get his reaction on twitter. thank you. is your car ready for the long winter ahead? what you should always keep handy to make sure you're safe on the roads, it's next. ♪ slow ride, take it easy ♪ this is america. we don't let frequent heartburn come between us and what we love. so if you're one of them people who gets heartburn and then treats day afr
policy organizations. the website of the council on foreign relations targeted in a sophisticated attack. chinese hackers are suspected of using a new ploy called a drive-by. apparently getting into the server that operates the website and using the system to attack cfr members and others who visited the site. doug luzader is keeping an eye on that from washington. this is a website, doug, visited by a lot of powerful people. >> reporter: jon, good morning that may have been the motivation behind this attack. according to the washington beacon, computer specialists think that chinese hackers may have been behind this if you go to the website itself, everything works just fine. that is apparently the nature of this kind of attack where hackers are just out to glean information. the council did send fox news a statement about the situation saying that the council on foreign relations website security team is aware of the issue and is currently investigating the situation. we're also working to mitigate the possibility for future events of this sort. now, again according to the free beacon

, but a good man. host: i will let you take that. guest: a lot of foreign policy groups are opposed to him because they feel he is too critical to iran. another factor is the senate is a club. there is a lot of personality involved. there are a lot of prominent senators that do not like chuck hagel. i do not know what it is. he spoke his mind. that may bother a lot of people. there is a lot of intense opposition. the obama administration floated his name. i do not the that means the president is committed to nominating him. i think they put his name out to see the reaction. host: the caller said he believes president obama caves too much. guest: i am not sure if is a cave because they do not think president obama is that committed to nominating him i think he was willing to go through with the rice nomination, but she pulled out. there is always a calculation to be made as to how much political capital you want to spend in the nomination fight. i am told he was considering up anyway.e's name host: hilda solis is the secretary of labor. any indication she is thinking about going? guest: no,
attack in benghazi injected foreign policy into the race. >> justice will be done. >> reporter: a week later, the campaign shifted again to the hidden cram ra video of romney's comments on the 47% and an instant obama attack ad. number four, among the year's biggest moments. >> there are 47% of him who are with him. >> reporter: the gop needed a breakout moment and got one at number three. the debates and president obama's lackluster performance in the first face-off put romney back in the hunt. the president would have to redeem himself and polls show that he did. >> i said if i got bin laden in our sights, i would take that shot. >> reporter: but at number two came the mother of october surprises. sandy. the devastating superstorm put much of the nation's focus on the president's handling of the crisis. and the high marks he received from a top romney surrogate, new jersey governor, chris christie. >> i can't thank the president enough for his personal concern and passion for our state. >> reporter: polls show the race moving towards the president who won handedly. >> this is he elec
the right pick? does that make him a defense expert? >> no. he is not a defense expert dave. foreign policy expert. what we need in a very complex world today ratcheted by wars in afghanistan. cyber war. threats from iran, north korea, china, et cetera. and a defense department has more than 3 million people scattered across this world. it's someone that really understands defense. someone that's spent their entire life working the bureaucracy that knows the industrial base that knows soldiers. you know, i have nothing against senator hagel. he is a fine man. i have met him before. i think he is well-intended. but what we need are people like michelle floornoid. ash hammer. we need people who know the systems inside-out. the president needs the best advice in a time of war and time of crisis. we are forcing says questions station. tenuous time for armed forces given all these threats. >> dave: after what john boehner said on friday it looks like sequestration could actually happen. the question is why does the president want chuck hagel. when you look at his background. maybe not a defense
